New Year – New Book, and a Giveaway!



Hi everyone. I’m sure by now you’re tired of hearing, “Happy New Year”, so I won’t say it. 


But I am happy that we’ve flipped the page from 2019 into the roaring twenties. Starting a new decade is exciting, isn’t it? 

And there’s just something about January that fills me with so much hope. Having a brand new year filled with 365 days of opportunity reminds me that no matter what happened in the previous year, anything is possible for 2020. 

It’s also kind of exciting that I have a new brand new book out during this first month of the New Year. It’s a first for me in that it’s the first Amish Suspense I’ve written for Love Inspired Suspense, and it kicks off what will be a series of Amish Suspense stories set in the West Kootenai, Montana Amish Community. 

So, what about you? What are you most looking forward to in this new decade? 

Leave a comment, and you'll be entered in a drawing for a copy of AMISH COUNTRY KIDNAPPING. Print copy to US residents. E-book to those outside of the US. I’ll announce the winner on January 22. 

Many, many blessings to you and your family this new decade!

All the best…

  2. I'm looking forward to growing my relationship with Christ Jesus not just over the next decade, but as each new day comes. It's a choice to make each and every day that I wake up. I'd like to enjoy more time quilting (I'm just learning) and reading as well. Blessings to you and your family in this new year.

  12. I’m wanting to dig into the Bible deeper. B.I.B.L.E. Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. Several years ago I read the Bible through beginning to end. What would I say to God one day when I was face to face with Him and He asked me, “Gail I wrote a best seller, why did you not read it?” Now I’m ready to go deeper.

  17. In this new decade, I am looking forward to doing as much traveling and seeing all this great nation has for as long as I'm able to wiggle. With health issue that progress as well as new ones thrown in on top every so often, I'm determined to see and do all I can. This year if all goes well, we will see the 5 national parks in Utah. There are several states we haven't been to and even amazing sights to see yet in the ones we have been to. Means lots of doing my part to stay healthy and trips to plan.

    Can't wait for the opportunity to read "AMISH COUNTRY KIDNAPPING". Definitely on my TBR list. Love the Amish genre and when you add Love Inspired Suspense to the mix, I'm in reader's heaven as soon as I open the book.
